to the city is $660,492 including payments to employees of 57 5 682 and employer fica and medicare contributions. it is our understanding that there would be no additional administrative costs for administering this ordinance. we consider, because this proposed ordinance may result in new ongoing costs of the city as an estimated $660,492 per year, we consider approval of this ordinance to be a policy matter for the board. >> thank you. any other questions for our budget legislative analyst? catherine, i don't know if there is anything that you want to talk about? i want to thank you for working on this legislation. if there was anything else you wanted to add? okay. so with that, [ inaudible ] >> mr. chairman, the financial impact of this legislation, if approved by the board of supervisors, signed by the mayor would need to be added to the budget next fiscal year. that would be done through the mayor's budget. and it would probably be budgeted in "general responsibility." and as we were prepared to disperse those dollars we would allocate those dollars to the appropriate de
of the chief during the return to duty presentation and then sometimes the city attorney will caution us not to ask certain questions. and the reason why, it was explained to me and i got it, is that the powerpoint that is shown to us isn't necessarily what the chief saw and was basing his decision on when he approved or disapproved of the return to duty panel's recommendations. and that's part of why when we ask questions related to the powerpoint and not really to what the chief looked at, we're not doing things the right way. so, a part of this presentation was to figure out what does the panel look at and what is given to the chief versus what we see so that we are asking the right questions and we know the zone of questions to ask when we're given those powerpoint presentations so it's not the confusing thing to us. >> really, the powerpoint forms the basis of documents that are in there. again, the order -- 81 1 says the purpose is to determine whether it is appropriate to return the officer to duty. but it is avenue obviously very early in the investigation. so, the facts that ar

they believed they stopped at those intersections. so here's what's going on. the city of rockville changed camera vendors. changed the cameras and what they consider to be a red light violation. let's show you video we shot. here's what it looks like. the cameras will flash if the driver crosses the white stop line. also videotaped drivers making right turns on red but they'll get a ticket if they don't come to a complete stop before making the turn. westbound at research. 5087 tickets in 2012. only 1043 in in 2011. 4087 in 2012. only 756 last year . this is a brand new camera. it only began operating in august. 3981 in five months. here's what aaa had to say about that. >> in one year we saw the numbers of red light runners go from 8600 to 18,000 just shy of 18,000. now, what changed? the vendor and the methodology. doesn't mean that suddenly we have a whole rash of drivers in rockville that think it's all right to run red lights. there was no change in drivers. >> reporter: now aaa says using those stop lines as a trigger for red light violations may be contrary to guidelines that the fe
